My name is Jason and I’m going to get real with you for a minute.
I’ve always had big dreams, wanted to create a fulfilling life I was proud of, and genuinely cared about people.
However, as a kid and young adult, I suffered emotionally never believing I was good enough or that I could accomplish anything great.
My mission to inspire others to overcome adversity and know anything is possible begins with me being completely vulnerable which is why I share the following with you…
I battled depression for a considerable portion of my life, which negatively influenced many decisions and actions over the years resulting in painful consequences for myself as well as everyone around me. At age 28, depression claimed victory in our ongoing battle leading to an implosive downward spiral, which resulted in becoming homeless.
Fortunately, I was blessed to have an incredible group of individuals that gave me hope in times of hopelessness.What many would assume was one of the worst periods in my life proved to be one of the most beneficial, liberating and transformative.
My journey in overcoming depression taught me many valuable lessons that propelled me to where I am today. It is the essence of why I do what I do and ultimately provided me with the gift of learning who I am, what my core values are, and my reason for being here.
We often believe we lack the resources to be successful or overcome the roadblocks that lay ahead but what we really lack is the resourcefulness to achieve our dreams.
Growing up, my family owned multiple Provigo grocery stores which meant business was a part of everyday life. It also created opportunities for total immersion in business, management, human resources and what it takes to succeed at a very young age.
My business experience spans over twenty years where I held leadership positions as store manager, director, project manager, trainer, facilitator, and innovation & implementation manager with Loblaws, Metro, Iga, and Walmart in addition to working with hundreds as a personal trainer.
I’ve had the privilege to speak with intimate groups, massive teams, and audiences in the thousands.
Many people can tell you what to do, but few have the experience and have done it themselves.
